I have already done a search on this forum as to what the ideas are of the AAP in general, but this program was not addressed.
I have talked to one person who is in the program currently and she said that she was using it as a way to transition from her UG degree in Engineering to be prepared for a PhD in Economics, while still working as an Engineer in Pennsylvania and taking the JHU program classes online. I've noted that the program presents itself as a peer with other Applied Economics programs in their placement for various jobs, specifically Duke and Boston U come to mind.
But has anyone on here gone through the admissions process? If so, how did that work for you? I'm an UG at University of Washington studying Math and Economics and I was recommended to the program by a TA who subsequently introduced me to the woman who is in it currently. Unfortunately she's not been very forthcoming about her experience in applying.
So, if anyone could share their experiences with the program, I would greatly appreciate it, as I am considering it for graduate study after finishing at UW.
Thank you very much.
